The Kettlebell Flu

Random thoughts: The Kettlebell Flu

Monday I had two cases of “kettlebell flu” at my gym in two young, healthy men. Against my better judgement, I allowed two guys to “drop in” to my group classes.

The Kettlebell Flu is what happens when you experience the massive lactic acid dump and cardiovascular demand from a full-body kettlebell/bodyweight workout. Luckily, they both made it to the bathroom before puking.

These cases are exactly the reason I require people to work with me individually before taking part in group training. Kettlebell training is something you need to ease into. I don’t want anyone to throw up, especially on their first visit to my facility.

Less is more when starting with a kettlebell. You are placing a load on your body unlike anything you experience in bodybuilding or other types of “cardio” sessions on a treadmill or other machine.

Hopefully, both of these hard-chargers will be back soon. They will both make lots of progress fast.
